Hope BB confusion

Posted on
  • So I bought a bike with a Hope BB and a SRAM XX1 crankset.

    I want to put the Hope BB on my mountain bike which has a SLX crankset (and generic Shimano BB).

    However there's some weird metal collar on the non-drive side of the Hope BB which takes it from a 24mm hole to 22mm (ish, not put callipers on it). Can I get this collar out? (Shimano BB has hole for 24mm axle both sides). If I can, how do I get it out without screwing up the BB?

    I only know stuff about square taper BBs please help 😂

  • Sram cranks have 24mm one side, 22 on the other. The BB is probably shimano 24mm standard though. I think you might be able to knock out that silver spacer from the inside out

  • Thanks! How would you recommend knocking the silver spacer out?

  • There might actually be one pushed in from both sides. You should be able to get it off though. It's only pressed in

  • Flat head screwdriver and a gentle tap with a hammer?

  • OK I'll give that a go. It's definitely those two cups as I can see the join.

    Thanks Phil!

  • find these are great for knocking things out without damaging them (also good for headset cups etc)

  • Happy days, cheers Phil and MCamb :)
